From the first ground-breaking ceremony - to the finished roadway

This book is about the planning and construction of the first section of the first big
construction project in the Reich: The German Motorway.

The booklet starts with two forewords, one from the Reichspressechef Dr. Otto Dietrich
and one from the Generalinspekteur fur das deutsche Strassenwesen, Dr. Ing. Fritz Todt, dated 19 May 1935,
the day when the first section of the Reichsautobahn was opened to the public.

The rest of this scarce book is a very interesting photo documentation on the whole process of building
a part of the Autobahn with pictures of blueprints of bridges and sectors of the Autobahn, men and equipment
at work and the finished product, including a full page photo of a Reichsautobahn Gas Station.
